Just curious, did Brainen hijack this show?
Whats the deal with the oka chaga thing in Hooked on a Feeling? Seems there were other songs that had that oka Chagga. Seems like it was an afterthought. We have a bubblegum song and lets put this chanting on it.
OK: this is what the Wiki thing says but I still don't get it. Maybe there is nothing to get :P
"Hooked on a Feeling" is a 1968 pop song written by Mark James originally performed by B. J. Thomas. Featuring the sound of the electric sitar, the song reached number five in 1969 on the Billboard Hot 100. This then had two successful covers. In 1971, Jonathan King produced his own version, adding ooka shaka jungle chants similar to, but not exactly the same as, Johnny Preston's "Running Bear." King described it as "a reggae rhythm by male voices." His version was a Top 30 hit throughout Europe.
In 1974 the Swedish pop group Blue Swede with Björn Skifs as lead singer did a cover, with the "ooka shaka" introduction. Their version reached number one in the United States and was revived on the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack in 1992. In 1975, this version was subject to some minor controversy when Wilson Bryan Key, in his book Subliminal Seduction, claimed the words "ooka shaka" are changed to the phrase "who got sucked off" at 0:31 into the song.
It was covered again in 1997 by David Hasselhoff.
Not sure what you mean. You say "We have a bubblegum song and lets put this chanting on it. " like its something bad.
Ha ha, No judgement. I'm just mental. Just seems that the two sounds clash.
I hear "genius at work" - the idea of combining the 2 sounds = #1 hit!
OK! = #5 hit. Judgmental, get it?
I was hoping you had interviewed him and he had given some insight how he came to make that record.
it has to be either "she and he" or "her and him".
The Silver Fox!
Good show today

Hey, you played Watch Dog! That's a Number One hit!
Miista Eddy Fadah!!
thought I'd give you a #1 hit.
This is from an old Vinyl comp I ripped called " The Beat Merchants-
British Beat Groups 1963-64 released around 1972.. It never was released on a CD but most of the songs have been comped since. Except this one. The Addicts - That's My Girl. It's a sure # 1 hit.
